  • Spend five fun days photographing, learning how to use and be creative in Photoshop, and discovering the magic of the traditional black-and-white darkroom. Teen artists will start the week learning how to use their point & shoot or other digital camera through work both in the classroom and on short walks. We will then experiment with Photoshop in OCAC’s digital lab learning how to add textures and layers to add artistic expression to our images before converting our photographs into digital negatives. From here we will go into the traditional darkroom to print finely crafted silver gelatin prints. By the end of the week, students will have a new set of skills and some wonderful black-and-white prints for portfolios or for fun.

    ***Please bring a digital point & shoot style camera or DSLR style camera. If you do not own a digital camera, OCAC has several point & shoot cameras that can be reserved and borrowed. Please email cmalone@ocac.edu to reserve one.

  • The Jordan Schnitzer Family Art Adventures Summer Camp
    ****Early Bird Registration DISCOUNT: $25 off taken off at check out until APRIL 1, 2016****

    Each week, Art Adventures builds a community led by our talented artists/instructors and counselors. Campers explore creativity in art workshops designed to strengthen their creative abilities while developing their social, communication and intellectual skills. Campers play games, make friends, sing camp songs and build fantastic relationships with our amazing staff. We aim to inspire kids, build self-esteem, and allow for creative ideas to blossom. We think with our hands!

    The weeklong sessions run from 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday. Each Friday afternoon at 4pm, all of the young artists gather with parents and friends for an “Art Walk” to share their artwork with families, friends, camp staff and other artists. The art show gives campers a chance to celebrate the week’s accomplishments and to see their work through the eyes of others.

    Children are grouped by age/grade with a maximum of 12 per group. If your child would like to be grouped with ONE friend please be sure to indicate this in the “comment” field during check out. We do our best to group a set of friends together but we cannot guarantee placement. We strongly feel that camp is a great place to make new friends and develop social skills to build a new community each week.

    Who: Registration is open to children who will be entering grades 1-5 in the fall.

    What: Week-long sessions are comprised of four art workshops a day plus snack breaks, games, skits, friends and festivities!

    When: Daily camp schedule runs from 9am-5pm with extended care from 8-9am & 5-6pm for an additional fee.

    Where: Most workshops are taught in open tents throughout our beautiful 10-acre campus, using the natural environment as a backdrop for creativity.

    Why: Children need a chance to develop their creativity by exploring mediums, ideas and making with their hands. We give them the tools and instruction to learn and explore in a nurturing environment.

    Group Requests: If you would like your child to be grouped with one friend, please enter this request into the comments box during the checkout process. We are only able to group with one child, no more than one grade apart in age.

    Our exciting BEGINNINGS Camp is designed specifically for our youngest artists, ages 4-6 years, to guide our campers through an exploration of visual art, play, and song as a first step towards interdisciplinary creation. Our art camp links creative problem solving with exploratory learning, all directly tied to children’s imagination and a desire to create.

    Beginnings Camp is Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. This full-day schedule for the week includes a fantastic curriculum of free time for art making, structured projects that build throughout the week, environmental projects and discovery, free play, and quiet “reading” time. We emphasize exploration with mediums such as felting wool, drawing, painting, sculpture and mixed media. Art Adventures Beginnings will have its own Friday ART WALK, a final exhibition of the week’s activities and fun.

    BEGINNINGS Camp is made of busy, full days. At any time, you may choose to pick up your child earlier in the day, however we are unable to discount the price for the week for early pick-ups. We do offer before and after care (see below).

    We focus on small group creativity, so each session is made up of only 12 campers.

    Each week of Beginnings Camp will have a unique and exciting focus, so repeat campers are welcome!
